A convicted sex offender moved to the 2500 block of Avenue C in Bradenton Beach last week, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website. He is the second convicted sex offender to move to the city in 30 days.
By law, all convicted sex offenders must inform the FDLE of their address within 48 hours of moving to a new location. Local law enforcement routinely check on the whereabouts and activities of the offender.
The FDLE said Bradenton Beach police have been informed.
The offender is a 30-year-old man convicted in Manatee County in 2004 of lewd or lascivious battery on a victim between the ages of 12-15.
The other Bradenton Beach offender is a 65-year-old man convicted in Polk County in 1995 on two counts of sexual battery. In early September, he moved to the 1600 block of Gulf Drive in Bradenton Beach.
The FDLE lists one convicted sex offender in Holmes Beach and none in Anna Maria. One convicted sex offender lives in Cortez, according to the FDLE.
